I don't think the expectation I have is that we're ever "perfect" or "done," because if we don't feel the need to improve, then we are failing.
Ok, if you would follow that up with another question. As a normal player, where would you think needs improvement? And if that is not simple enough, what would the highest priority be, or the best first step?

A big subject I want to spend more time on - but you'll be seeing an extensive thing on this around the release. Lots of infos.

Who were all the team members on "God Bless You" by the end of Season 2?
What is the Season 1 Hall of Fame? The requirement for that is what Elo?
Why is challenger cap at 50 players?

There's a really good reason why I'm asking these specific questions.
Sorry to say, I have no idea. I bet the live designers and most champ designers could answer this more effectively.

(also nerf armor+more cost)
I am responsible, just not in tough with the details (mostly guiding philosophy). It's still my fault this exists, at the end of the day!

Why does there seem to be no focus on a replay system? It seems from an impartial (i.e. not a "I want my favorite champ skin riot pls" or "x is imba") view, that this should be a priority from a growth and player satisfaction standpoint. Most other concerns have been addressed and this seems to be a missing core feature from the game that has never received a response of even generic terms
There's been a focus actually, we just probably have the worst foundation of all time for making replays. Certain other things are easy for us (like deploying rapidly - something hard for a lot of games) while other normally-easy things are excruciating - like replays

What would you say the most broken or unbalanced part of league of legends is right now?
